I will go through the drive thru for a cone but that is it. They used to serve a good breakfast but no longer have it available. The employees seem to be inept and rude at best. Of course, there will always be the occasional good one. I have not been there that often because it is not a place... More

My wife worked here thirty years ago and wanted to stop in to see how much things have changed while we were in the area. Funny thing was, not much has changed. They added a drive thru and some behind the counter updates, but the light fixtures, booths are still the same. Things are clean and well maintained but it's... More

Love DQ, but especially love that they usually give my pups a treat in the drive thru. I stop here quite a bit when in the area.

The owner need to hire employees who don't complain and roll their eyes because its busy and I stood in line for a 5 minutes watching her do this. She didn't even ask for my order, so me and my family just walked out and went the Ice Cream shop down the road. Talk about not good for business! And... More

The cheese curds were over cooked and the ice cream was hard and not at all like DQ should be like. Not what I would call soft serve. Also the bun on my sons hotdog was stale and had mold. Go down the road to Mcdonalds and save yourself the trouble.

With there not being many options in a small town, we drove through Dairy Queen for a sweet treat. The service was fast, but more importantly, the service was great! Friendly, and smiling - which as everyone knows doesn't happen much at fast food locations

I've always been surprised at how big the portions are and the trademark curl at the top of the ice cream is always perfect. They are great in summer and winter. They do their best!

Was just in Ladysmith this last weekend and had to stop at the DQ. Growing up, spent many weeks with my grandparents and we always went to DQ to get ice cream. It is a little different from years ago, and of course it has all the newest items, but the service was great. Stopped in just for the ice... More
